A beautiful hardy deciduous shrub native to the Rocky Mountains. It has  moderate growth to 5ft., but can be held at any height with pruning.  Dark green leaves turn maroon in the fall. Bright yellow flowers in the spring are followed by edible berries, great for attracting birds! It was first found and recorded by Meriwether Lewis in 1806 and remains one of the most notable natives in the west! It tolerates most soils, is deer resistant and drought tolerant.
